CHILDRESS – In response to the recent winter storms, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering farmers and ranchers technical and financial assistance to repair and replace certain damaged conservation practices.
NRCS is accepting applications for its Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) for the recovery measures of animal mortality and animal mortality facility, high tunnel systems, irrigation system and irrigation pipeline, livestock pipeline, obstruction removal, pumping plant, roofs and covers, waste storage facility, water well and watering facility, a release from USDA stated.
The deadline for submitting applications is April 2. Applications will be ranked and approved as soon as possible so conservation work can begin, the release stated. Producers must submit a separate application by the deadline for this disaster sign-up to be considered.
Farmers and ranchers who were negatively impacted by the winter weather are encouraged to contact their local NRCS office to seek assistance.
